Hope you're all well.
I'm starting to work on rebranding my blog and YouTube. I know I've dropped the ball in recent months - it's been a difficult past year and sometimes things you enjoy become a chore and for me that's what started happening with my content.
I ended up feeling like just throwing posts together because I felt I had to which made me start to resent it. I never want to feel like that about sugarfixxbeauty.com because I've worked extremely hard for 3 years on a hobby that I didn't think would become so successful. I have been proud and privileged to work with some incredible brands and beauty will always be my passion.
I do want to write more lifestyle, personal posts but I want to do it in the right way. Sometimes past posts have been off the cuff writing and whilst I enjoy that, it often feels like over sharing. I have lots of interests outside of beauty - whether it's music, tv/movies and even sport. I want to create a place where everything is there in a way that you can click on your preferred topic rather than people having to scroll past posts.
Will I change the blog name? Will I have secondary channel? Who knows. Maybe it's time for the next chapter. Everything is kinda up in the air but I felt an update was necessary for you guys to understand where I'm coming from.
So, with that in mind please bare with me as I navigate through the minefield that is my brain to get to a place where I'm happy with where everything is going.
All suggestions welcome :)
Love, Kate xo

We all have it and I for one find it an absolute chore. Who's with me? I must say I'm glad the winter months are on their way so I don't have to get my razor out every 5 minutes. One thing I'd never really thought about was laser hair removal.

I'm really into sheer, simple lips at the moment as I find they really make my lips look super juicy. That's not mentioning they're so easy to wear! One of my current favourite shades is actually from Shiseido which isn't a brand I usually gravitate towards. I have a Veiled Rouge Lipstick* (£19.50) in the shade PK304 which is a gorgeous soft, peachy pink combo that I absolutely adore.
The formula of these lipsticks is lovely, very nourishing and non-sticky whilst giving a lovely pop of colour on the lips. Obviously, as the lipstick is a sheer formula it isn't particularly long lasting but the colour fades down nicely and doesn't go patchy or gloopy at all plus you can layer it and have no problems.
The packaging itself is quite thin which I like as it's a good, compact size for your handbag and I think the only downside - and I'm being pedantic - is that the shade name is a code rather than a name which is ridiculous because it's really not that important.
What type of finish are you loving at the moment?

I must admit, whenever I go into Leeds I'm often dumbfounded at the amount of new places opening. I'm getting on a bit now and I don't go out as often as I used to but when I do, I much prefer bars than clubs. I always have.

I think it's pretty safe to say that the world of online beauty shopping is forever expanding with the list of sites to visit continually growing. What really stands out to me is that need to try new products and brands as well as hard to get hold of products. As a beauty blogger and all round cosmetics junkie, I'm always striving to try the latest innovations and find new holy grail items.

For the longest time, I've flittered between different brushes for sculpting those cheekbones - I've tried tapered brushes, small brushes and heck even larger eyeshadow brushes! I'd lusted after the NARS Kabuki Ita Brush (£43.00) for what felt like an eternity until I just couldn't hack life without it. I managed to pick up the brush for a slightly more affordable price in Sephora and I haven't looked back!
What I love about this brush is the shape, it is flat and rectangular and whilst it looks incredibly dense it's actually got a good amount of movement which makes blending an absolute dream. The handle is very lightweight which means you can have a bit more freedom when you're using it. When applying powder contour, it takes me mere seconds to carve out and blend the product to give me a much slimmer, contoured face. It works equally as well on the sides of my nose as it does on my cheekbones.
I'm completely besotted with this brush and I am thrilled I took the plunge and picked it up!
Have you tried this brush or anything similar?
